"Sally has been our champion to the poor and vulnerable woman, children and families in our community and has been instrumental in helping us provide them with a home! She threw us a life ring when no one else would."
Marty Hartman, Director,
Mary's Place - A day shelter for homeless women and their children
Thank you. Thank you to all the voters in the 2011 cycle. You make a difference.
I am honored to have your votes of confidence for another term working on your behalf. It’s a great honor to have this job.
I look forward to making real progress on moving more Seattleites into living wage jobs, ensuring that no one has to sleep on our streets, and that when we spend our tax dollars we do it with the greatest efficiency and impact.
I truly believe that local government can solve the problems we face as a city and chart a path forward that’s great for us, our neighborhoods and our future.
In this past budget review I raised the question of expanding access to the severe weather shelter at City Hall. We found eager, crafty City staff able to find the money to make it happen almost immediately. City Hall now functions as a dependable overnight shelter October to April.
